This particular model shares many similarities with the Lifecore r88. Both have sturdy designs and give the consumer a lot of value for money in terms of what they are getting in the end product. Let’s find out how this machine stands out against it’s rivals and competitors below.


It has a modern, foldable design will ensure that this rower will be easily stored away when not in use and allow you to use space more efficiently, whether or not your are in the gym or home.

Ergonomically designed handles, footrests and seat ensure the user gets the maximum amount of comfort while working out. The footrests are pivoted, and the seat has a contoured shape, all designed to reduce the amount of stress on your body and joints.

It’s dimensions are 92 inches by 19 inches by 36 inches and it has a strong, stable core which allows the machine to handle user weights of up to 600 lbs. This is a huge design change when you compare it to most rowers on the market. Usually rowing machines support around 300 lbs give or take, so the ‘commercial grade’ features really shine through in that aspect.


It comes with a total of sixteen different levels of magnetic resistance. Each resistance level more difficult then the next allowing the user to gradually progress towards rowing with more resistance, and allowing advanced users to mix up their workouts.

Exercise programs

There is a total of nineteen different workout programs. Each one designed to benefit you and push you to your limit. Four of these programs are heart rate centered which will work in conjunction with several Polar heart rate monitors.

Computer monitor

It includes a large LCD computer monitor which is easy to read. It has the ability to record your rowing stats such as strokes, distance and time taken exercising. If you are smart and record these figures after every workout, you can give yourself something to improve on, and hopefully to motivate you. On top of that the computer will allow you to store your exercise data for four different users, making this an ideal solution for a family home or a gym.

Customer reviews

Positive feedback includes comments on how quiet and smooth the rower is. Others comment on the amount of variation you can add to your workout.

Negative feedback included comments about some users having difficulty getting the heart rate monitor to work.


All things factored and taken into account, the general feel is that the Lifecore R100 provides the user with a sturdy, durable design that is comfortable and packed full of useful features that will enable the user to get a top class cardio exercise from the machine. While it will be mostly suited for users with a higher budget, it appears this particular model is an excellent solution for both home and commercial gym users.
